Feeling a little confused and aprehensive. After coming to terms with my recently diagnosed RA I was just beginning to accept lots of drugs would be part of life. Was on Methatrexate tablets then changed to injections. All ok apart from 24-48 hours lethargy and some acid reflux. Saw consultant and my joints are all behaving at the moment. He gave three options to over come the side affects so reduce Methatrexate dose, try another drug or as all quiet try stopping all drugs. We know a steroid jab in the bum haults a flare quick so we have that as a back up. He said the initial treatment may have been just enough to put the lid on the box for now but if it all wakes up we can start again with a different tablet. Has this happened to anyone else? Am I lining myself up for a fall?
